Cats with Seizures
The Small Animal Neurology Service is enrolling feline patients with a history of seizures that are receiving end-of-life treatment at UW Veterinary Care in a study evaluating the cause and effect of seizures on the brain in cats.
This study will investigate the clinical signs and physical changes to the brain that are caused by seizures. The aim of this study is to confirm that temporal lobe epilepsy, the most common type of epilepsy in humans, occurs in cats. This will advance treatment options for cats with epilepsy.

Dogs Needed For Acquired Laryngeal Paralysis Genome-Wide Association Study
- PUREBRED Labrador Retrievers AND Golden Retrievers 11.5 years old or older with no history of laryngeal paralysis.
- Dogs of any breed, 8 years old or older, that are affected with acquired laryngeal paralysis.
Having pedigree information is appreciated as study dogs should NOT be closely related to other study dogs. Enrolled dogs will receive a free clinical examination through the Small Animal Neurology or General Surgery Service at UW Veterinary Care, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
